Weekly Love: Week 171

Can someone please explain to me why it took me over 9 months after starting my job to take a holiday? After a couple of days at home in Kent and in London, I headed off to my parents stone barn in rural Brittany for a few days relaxation, trips into the local town for galettes, to the harbour for the freshest French seafood, and to mix cement for the patio we’ve lain around the side of the house to drink our aperitifs on (as you do!) I had no idea how much I needed the break until I was actually there. Note to self: if you’re going to pretty much always be pulling 7 day weeks, take some time to unwind every few weeks or so!
Weekly Love 21.04.16

1. Kicking off my 10 days holiday Daddy Daughter lunching at Hutong on the 32nd floor of The Shard. | 2. Strolling along the harbour looking out at the oyster beds in Cancale, Brittany after demolishing an absolutely epic Fruits de Mer platter – full blog post to follow, I promise! | 3. Greeting the local sheep on our way out for a long Sunday morning walk through the Kentish countryside. | 4. Monday night, after work essentials. | 5. Beautiful blooms outside Canterbury West railway station. | 6. Some Friday night steak action for the first barbecue of the season.

What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend? I arrived home from France yesterday so my weekend is going to be all about catching up on emails and setting down with a nice cup of tea to work through all the unreads that have cumulated in my Bloglovin’ while I’ve been away.
